Today's MES (Manufacturing Execution Software) Software that provides real time access to plant activities that include equipment, labor, orders and inventory. An MES integrates the data with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems so that management has complete control of solutions have evolved into monolithic software suites that create functional overlap with SAP and plant floor automation systems. This overlap often produces data redundancy Writing data to two or more locations for backup and data recovery. For example, data can be stored on two or more disks or disk and tape or disk and the Internet. See disk redundancy and data recovery. , transaction replication and expensive maintenance and support costs. Designed for the pharmaceutical and process industries, Performix xMES eliminates these gaps by leveraging existing functionality residing within the SAP system and extending the reach of SAP into the manufacturing plant floor environment. The integration of Performix xMES and SAP dramatically reduces the complexity, cost and time associated with installation while streamlining manufacturing processes.
This innovative approach completes the SAP manufacturing solution for batch manufacturing and enables customers to achieve Manufacturing Excellence by fully leveraging functionality and master data already in SAP R/3 and filling the gaps that exist between SAP and the MES and automation systems.
"The Performix xMES solution ensures customers are deriving the most value from their existing SAP investments," said Sham Afzalpurkar, founder and chief executive officer, Performix.
